Wildcats Offer Houston Running Back

Although one of the smaller backs in stature, Houston Jersey Village running back Anthony Bibbs is picking up notice, and offers.

Weight- 194

Bibbs is a talented running back who possesses both the speed to run around defenders and the power to run them over. Although elusive, Bibbs gains most of his yards after contact - which makes him an intriguing running back for many college programs.

Anthony suffered a major set back last year with a shoulder injury that required extensive surgery to repair ligaments and his rotator cuff. With the surgery over, Bibbs looks to return to the form that put him on the recruiting boards of numerous college programs.

"They had to go in and fix a lot of things in my shoulder but now it feels great. I won't have any contact on it until August but I'm ready to go," said Bibbs.

In his junior year Bibbs rushed for 1,200 yards, and had 200 yards in receiving to go along with 8 touchdowns while earning all-district honors in the meantime. Bibbs currently runs a 4.41 in the 40, and benches 285 lbs. while squatting 475 lbs.

Kansas State, who has already extended a scholarship offer according to Bibbs, is just one of the Big 12 schools actively recruiting him to be a part of their program.

"I am definitely going to visit K-State," said Bibbs, "I'm really excited about going up there."

Other schools interested are Oklahoma State, Illinois, Missouri, and Arizona.

"I'm also hoping to hear from Texas Tech because in their offense the running backs get chances to catch the ball out of the backfield, and that's what I like to do. Even though Illinois has had the best record lately I was really excited about them when I visited with their coaches." Bibbs told KStateFans.com.
